The River Lee

The River Lee Hotel is the perfect vantage point from which to savor the city and everything that Cork has to offer. Located approximately 1km from the famous English market in the city centre, and standing on a bend on the river, it is just a short stroll from the city centre, in a leafy waterside setting. A striking contemporary building, the River Lee Hotel has a series of tall and bright ground floor spaces opening onto a large sunny terrace overlooking the river. Quality natural materials such as wood, stone and glass provide a background for an interesting collection of contemporary art. The rooms are truly outstanding; all are bright and spacious, with large comfortable beds, four piece bathrooms and dedicated work spaces. They enjoy a range of panoramic views; across the city from the front facing rooms, over the leafy parkland of the Bishops Palace to the rear, or from the premium corner rooms directly onto rushing waters of the weir.
